Tommasi Poggio al Tufo Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep ruby red in color, it has a broad, complex nose with aromas of blackberry preserve, black pepper, licorice, vanilla and balsamic herbs. On the palate it is mouth-filling, rich and full-bodied, with velvety tannins that are nicely integrated with a pleasing sensation of freshness.
Ideal with grilled meats, rich pasta dishes such as pappardelle with mushrooms or with a white meat sauce, and with moderately aged cheeses.

A dark, almost regal nose of black cherries, blackberries, steel and slate gets welcome levity from an undertone of violet. The dark fruit and metallic glint reappear on the palate, while chalky, chewy tannins accentuate a slow-developing dark chocolate note, and bright acid provides tartness through the finish.
